Shape the future of a child - become a mentor!

January is National Mentoring Month - the perfect time to sign up to become a mentor.

Over the past year, Tippecanoe County Youth Services (TCYS) has been working with Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Greater Lafayette to create the Greater Lafayette Mentoring Partnership (GLMP).  Through GLMP, we have been able to share resources in order to match all youth in the juvenile justice system who request a mentor.  We currently have 14 kids who are waiting to be matched.  If you have been looking for a way to make a lasting change in our community, this is a great opportunity.

Mentors matched with a youth in a TCYS program will initially meet at Cary Home until both parties feel comfortable meeting in the community.  Mentors are expected to meet with their mentees 1-3 hours a week and to commit to one year.
